Nicotinic acid hydrazide (2) was prepared by the esterification of nicotinic acid (1) followed by treatment with hydrazine hydrate, which on condensation with various aldehydes (3a-e) gave N'- [arylmethylene]nicotinohydrazide (4a-e). These on cyclization with mercaptosuccinic acid, yielded 2-{2- aryl-3-(nicotinamido)-4-oxo-1,3-thiazolidin-5-yl}acetic acid (5a-e). Compounds (5a-e) were further converted into acid chloride derivatives (6a-e) by reaction with thionyl chloride. Subsequent treatment of (6a-e) with N-hydroxyphthalimide in the presence of TEA furnished the title compounds (7a-e). Final compounds have been evaluated for antifungal and antibacterial activity. Some of the compounds have shown significant inhibition towards bacterial and fungal growth.
